Re: Warning: 0-Day vulnerability in Java 7

Opera is as bad as Mozilla. I am not allowed to use version 6 on it.

No wonder I use IE8 more these days...I'm forced to as version 6 works fine on it.

Well, I've got Java 7 UD 6. Don't like disabling it, because unlike some others here, I do occasionally have use for it. (My ISP's speed test for one, which I like, uses Java...and a few other sites).
But in this case I'll do without for a while I suppose. Hope they don't take forever to release a patch.

I think the exploiters would be happy you have gone back to version 6..they might be counting on it since...

This means that there might be, for example, more computers on the Internet that run outdated installations of Java 6 that are vulnerable to older Blackhole exploits, than computers running Java 7.
